    It's a chopper. What matters is the specific components when it comes time for you to work on it. "History" is pretty irrelevant since HDs and clones are as generic as it gets. Look at the engine...

    Bolting to table is an interesting idea since it turns the table into a very large "chain wrench" that could work with bare shafts too.
